Hall/Eberle/Paajarvi/etc. will all be a year older and likely improved on impressive rookie seasons, but we'll also be a full year without Penner, and probably half a season or more without Hemsky as well (I figure he's gone at the deadline if not this offseason).
I think there is a 95% we send RNH back to Junior
